Welcome!

No matter what your reason is for transferring to Ithaca College, you'll get the help you need every step of the way, from scheduling a visit to completing your application.

Who is a transfer student?

Applicants who have received a high school diploma (or its equivalent) and subsequently earned nine or more college credits or enrolled full time at another college are transfer students.

Criteria for transfer admission

Transfer applicants may apply for either fall or spring admission to IC and are reviewed based on their college and high school academic records. Please go to the Apply to Ithaca section of our website for information about supporting documentation requirements for transfer applicants

Please note: We regret that we cannot consider transfer applications to occupational therapy or physical therapy.

Transfer credit

Transfer credit is typically awarded for college-level courses taken at a regionally accredited college or university, provided a grade of C- or better was earned. Each course is evaluated individually, and Ithaca College reserves the right to not award transfer credit for courses deemed unacceptable.

Financial aid

Transfer students are eligible for merit- and need-based financial aid. Eligibility requirements and descriptions of aid programs are available on the Tuition and Financial Aid website. Apply for need-based financial aid by completing both the FAFSA and the CSS Profile.

Orientation and Advising

The Office for New Student Programs offers a special transition program for transfer students that provides support related to academic advising, testing, and registration.  Services and resources for enrolled transfer students are coordinated by the Academic Advising Center
